The Half Tone Duo Rides Again!

This is Kalen Capra, upright bass & banjo player. Not only do we rock CO together, we also cowrote a song that will be on the upcoming record. He’s a good friend & a rockin’ road buddy. We shred the gnarly pow pow by day & rock faces off by night! (beware of face rocking & ass shaking.)
There’s still 2 weeks worth of shows CO fans, so check out the calendar & come dance with us!

Check out the show calendar & get your booties on the dance floor!
We may not be back to CO til August so now is the time to get your TC & Capra fix.

Hey y’all!  My new single, Somewhere Behind The Sun, is available on Soundcloud! Take a listen.  Music video coming soon.

About the track…

Somewhere Behind The Sun was written on a Ukulele in Spain while hiking the Camino De Santiago. It is dedicated to all the Pilgrims who walk west towards the sun. 500 miles in 42 days & the biggest lesson I learned was that we are all searching for answers within, while just putting one foot in front of the other. This is for all the friends I made on that amazing adventure. & all these adventures. Buen Camino amigos!

Taos, ABQ, Salida & Beyond

imageMy plan to post daily has already slipped. :)  It’s hard to find the time when on the move every day.  Here’s an update on the last few days..

KTAO Solar Radio Station in Taos, NM.. the show was great but crowd was small.  I ended up driving the wrong way (40west) when leaving ABQ & added at least another 2 hours onto my trip to Taos.  Needless to say I rolled in late to KTAO with 7 min to set up & get out of my gym clothes.   But alas, there was an opening band so I sat back with a Stella & a buddy & talked about how good snowboard/ski boots should fit.  (did I mention no shower yet… no hugs please :)

I woke in the morning & headed to a reflexologist in Taos.  My feet adore her!  My whole body is aligned & empowered after a session with Cynthia.  Thanks girl.  & thanks for coming to the show.

So, I took those empowered feet & rolled down to ABQ again to play Marble Brewery for the first time.  The show was awesome!  Everyone was so supportive.. pounding on tables & sticking around for the full show.  Definitely check this place out again on another run thru NM.

The next morning, Sunday, I found a hot yoga class in Rio Rancho & rocked vinyasa with a big group of people.  The class was super hot!  My yoga mat got so slick from sweat that I had to take child’s pose a bunch instead of the warrior flows cause I was slippin.   Good for the ego :)  && easy on the quads.  Oh lunges..

My good friend, Kenny, & I found a great place for dinner.  Vinaigrette!  A bottle of red wine from Rioja, delicious salads & a nummy mushroom stew.  MMMmMMMmMmmmm.  There’s really nothing like a beautiful dinner with friends.  right??

Next morning I packed it up & headed to Taos Ski Valley/ Boot Doctors where I proceeded to learn about a proper fitting boot.  Thanks guys.  I know I interrupted the clinic to get fitted for my snowboard boots, but hey- They fit tight & are super stiff.  I will rock the mountain this year!!  Who knew a half size smaller would feel so good.  Thanks Charlie~

Onward.  I hauled ass up to the Book Haven in Salida, CO for an awesome house concert in a bookstore.  Prob 40 people came out & you could hear a pin drop.  2 of my favorite things about performing..

1.  when people laugh at my jokes :)

2. when people get a visceral reaction to the tunes.

Both are always readily available with the fans in Salida.  Thanks y’all!  esp Jerry for helping me load in & out & for being such a badass.  Next time, fly fishing lessons.

See u in Vail Valley, Manitou, & Denver soon folks!

I Love Snow 2014 CO/NM Tour Begins!


Im off! I loaded up the Honda Pilot & headed up to ABQ last night to play the first show of this tour at Red Door Brewing Company. The beer- is awesome! The vibe- fun & supportive. The staff- bad asses. Everyone was on the dance floor by the end of the night.
I highly recommend checking them out. Ill be swinging back to Red Door once a month. Back in October, I was officially the first music act to play at RD & we (crowd & myself) rocked it!
They have the Pasion Latin Fusion food truck available. (The fish tacos are off the hook!)

Anyway, last night went smashing & this morning I hit up Liberty Gym to get my sweat on & Taj Mahal for a lunch buffet. Indian buffets are so much better after an intense work out.

On to Taos! See you at KTAO tonight y’all~
Bring it to the dance floor!
